The story of the Scottish thistle:
Legend has it, late in the summer of 1263, King Haakon of Norway planned to conquer Scotland, and his army secretly landed on the Coast of Largs one dark night. To avoid being detected, the Norse warriors removed their shoes, but one soldier's bare foot landed on a thistle, causing him to scream in agony and alert the sleeping Scottish Clansmen. This woke them up just in time to repel the attack, and the thistle has since been associated with good luck, courage, bravery, and strength.
Alexander III declared the thistle as the Scottish national flower, and it has appeared on various Scottish coins and the Royal Arms of Scotland throughout the centuries. The Order of Chivalry in Scotland is called "The Most Ancient and Noble Order of the Thistle, the order's motto is "Nemo me impune lacessit," meaning "no one provokes me with impunity." A fitting motto for a prickly flower.
This limited, rugged take on the national flower of Scotland has a dark academia aesthetic making it a perfect gift for those that treasure the days and craftsmanship of a bygone era.
